Wireless devices that monitor the pressure and temperature within the brain and then dissolve into the body are described in Nature. The study tests the performance of these devices in rats and finds that it is comparable to that of permanent devices currently used in clinical settings. Read the paper here: http://bit.ly/1RxqNQN
Researchers have developed biocompatible brain implants that can monitor brain injury before completely dissolving

I would propose we should try to avoid the apparent contradiction of »making« and »critical thinking«. Just because 99,9% of educational technology is useless junk, doesn't mean that the 0,1% can't be totally awesome and empowering.

#dePuydt 's Panarchy - a viable model for tolerance and coexistence?
 
Panarchy theory
Panarchy theory explains the evolution of ecosystems and may apply to civilizations as well-and it says we're approaching a critical phase (1, 2, 5).

Canadian ecologist C. S. Holling observed that there are cycle phases
Cycles have an adaptive rhythm of growth, collapse, regeneration, and again growth (1, 2, 8).

Panarchic future - ‘an accident waiting to happen'.... 
Panarchy theory helps us understand how complex systems of all kinds, including social systems, evolve and adapt.
For example our capitalism's pressure on people to be more productive and efficient drives them to acquire hyperspecialized skills and knowledge. "They will become less autonomous, more dependent on other specialized people and technologies, and ultimately more vulnerable to shocks." (1, 2, 3, 4)  
The longer a system is locked in to its growth phase, says C. S. Holling, "the greater its vulnerability and the bigger and more dramatic its collapse will be." (1, 2)

Erkenntnisgewinn ein aktiver und kreativer Prozess...
Dabei beleuchten unsere Vermutungen (Theorien) über die
Realität - gleichsam wie Scheinwerfer aus der Dunkelheit der
Welt - genau jene Aspekte, die den Theorie-Inhalten
entsprechen (laut Poppers Scheinwerfer-Theorie).
Das „Extremmodell“ wird zur Methode. (6)

Risiko, Panarchie, Resilienz und Koevolution - was machen wir daraus? 
Wie gehen wir mit Risiken um?
Mehr hierzu finden Sie unter Link 6. 

Von der evolutionären Panarchie zur verschollenen Idee von 1860 - zum Panarchismus...
Panarchismus - ein Begriff des Botanikers und Wirtschaftstheoretikers Paul Émile de Puydt -  ist eine politische Philosophie (7).
Panarchismus beinhaltet die griechischen Wortstämme pan- (alles) und -archie (Regierungsform).  Panarchismus bezeichnet also eine alles umfassende Regierungsform, die alle Regierungsformen einschließt.   

Im Panarchismus ist die Idee der friedlichen Koexistenz verschiedener Systeme enthalten... 
Inspirierende Individuen in friedlicher Koexistenz - ein anregender Gedanke...
Jedes Individuum könnte frei aussuchen, welchem System (Monarchie, Republik, monopolistischer Staatsreligion etc.) es angehören will: „Laissez faire, laissez passer!“

Tant qu'on laisse faire la nature...
Man lasse die Natur machen... 
Wirklich laissez-faire oder besser Wu wei - das „Tun ohne Tun“ (Tun im Nichtstun)?
Das chinesische Wu-Wei-Prinzip - das zwanglose Handeln - macht sich natürliche Gesetzmäßigkeiten nutzbar. Mit Wu-Wei werden dauerhaft funktionierende, nachhaltige und naturnahe Kreisläufe geschaffen (9, 10).

As a foreigner living in Norway, I find "Lilyhammer" very amusing, and so did my students who recommended it. Not sure how the series will succeed in Germany, where it undoubtedly will be dubbed and characteristic dialects, accents and voices will be lost to the audience ...
